In him we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28). Our spiritual focus and dedication for 2022 is: Moving with Spirit.
Movement is part of life. It is part of our bodies in big and small ways. It is part of our thoughts which are often fast-movers. It is part of our ideas which can sometimes be very fixed in place. It is part of our feelings and emotions which come and go like the weather. It is part of the spirit which in the very beginning moved across the waters and set everything in motion. For it is the wind that blows where it will and we see but the effect but not where it comes from or where it is going. The movement of the spirit creates.
It’s about being conscious of the moving or currents of the spirit – and how we work with that and respond to that. We are certainly in the midst of that now, with a mighty wind blowing.
It’s about being conscious of our own ability to move, to shift our position, to change our thoughts, shift our feelings. To come down from our high tower and join the pilgrims on the road, or to withdraw from the crowd and spend time with our Father in secret. To move from left to right. To rise up or lay down. To open our eyes or close them. To give voice or remain silent, and many nuances inbetween.
To move is creative. It initiates something. It brings life. It’s connected with purpose and intention. Movement, like language, reveals our purpose. It speaks of becoming freer to respond, to go beyond our current limitations and boundaries and move freely.
We will become aware of our growing freedom to move and respond to the spirit, and become truer to the spiritual I AM that we are called to be.
